>>Is it just me or is this Karma for supporting a separated relationship and renewing another flame with their children's blessing?<<

EH??? What is wrong with someone who is divorced dating again with the support of their children? I personally wouldn't choose to do it via a television show . . . is this what you have a problem with?

BTW - I've never watched the show. I just don't understand your "karma" statement.

ITA! I'm not crazy about the idea of doing it on TV, but why shouldn't someone who is divorced date again? Am I missing something here?

I'm not surprised to hear such replys.

People get pregnant out of wedlock and there are gay people in the world. Not every sitcom can be like "Leave it to Beaver."

I'm glad you turned it off if you found it to be morally damaging. However, had you kept it on, perhaps your mind would have opened a bit.

My concern isn't what shows are being shown but WHEN they're on in the evening.

Of Course there are, but aren't we condone-ing by supporting the Program airing it?!

Here was my one attempt at TV censorship. I was watching Buffy on FX and it was when Willow was a lesbian. She was kissing Tara..the one that was later brain sucked. Anyway, I decided I didn't want to explain lesbianism to Zak because I was tired and I didn't want to get into it.


I turned it to the news. The story that was on was about Laci Peterson followed by an auto accident shown in gory detail including the black body bag beside the car. I decided I would rather explain lesbianism and women loving each other than sensationalistic news and a man (allegedly) killing his own pregnant wife.

I just don't even know what to say. . . .Friends is somehow morally damaging to you? Isn't it about "friends" who go through "real life" together and "support" eachother doing it? I was 10 weeks pregnant when I married my husband, my gay best friend gave me away - what does that make me!?! Morally damaging I suppose.

You have a choice - it is called the off button. But I think your choice of words are very judgemental.

No, I don't think so. In fact, maybe watching programs like this would be a good opportunity to talk to kids (depending on their ages of course) about having children before being married or about homosexuals.

And I hope when you're talking about condoning certain behavior that you're talking about the children out of wedlock rather than the gay lifestyle . . . the former you can prevent, the latter you can't. I don't think it's fair to condemn someone for something they cannot change.

Being an "overprotective" parent and being close-minded are not the same.
